Joanna Gaines Style

Plaid Top (comes in five colors)// Jeans (save version here under $30)// Belt (reversible, under $20)// Booties // Earrings  (under $10)

Happy new year!  I hope 2018 is off to a positive and productive start for all of you!  I want to apologize for my lack of posts lately.  I’ve been slacking in a major way!  One of my goals for 2018 is to do a much better job balancing everything: motherhood, my part-time job, this blog, and specific aspirations I have set for myself.  So, no more excuses!  My word of the year is control which I will go into further detail about later this week.  But, for now, let’s talk about how I’m channeling my inner Joanna Gaines.  Anyone else love her easy, effortless style?  She redefines mom style with her unique combo of casual tops and jeans paired with fun, interesting accessories.  I’m coveting all the jewelry pieces from Magnolia especially these metallic earrings  and this leather cuff.  If Magnolia is a bit out of your price range, you can find more affordable options at Target like these gold leaf earrings for under $10, this plaid top, and this reversible belt which is by far one of my favorite purchases from 2017.   The idea is comfortable, casual, and classic with an unexpected twist.  I’m linking to more pieces below that are reminiscent of Joanna’s style.  All of these pieces are under $80 with the exception of this timeless field jacket which is still a bargain for only $160 when you consider how often you’ll reach for it!

P.S….I’m listening to Niall Horan as I’m writing this blog post and I’m obsessed! Anyone else love his music???
